(LifeSiteNews) — It’s debatable whether or not Republicans will learn the right lessons from Glenn Youngkin’s victory in Virginia. History rarely shows that the GOP does what the people who voted them into office truly want.

When Donald Trump used his nationalist, America First message to win the White House over globalist puppet Hillary Clinton, Congressional Republicans followed up by passing a tax reform bill. They deservedly got pummeled in the 2018 midterms.

There are ample other examples to point to as well, but the point is that Youngkin’s victory should remind the GOP that culture war issues are winnable issues worth running on, and that boilerplate talking points about “big government” don’t convince independent voters the way they once did — if ever.

One thing Youngkin had going for him was that he had the distinct advantage of running at a time when the left got too greedy. Years of critical race theory and gender issues blew up in their face this year in Virginia. Parental rights, education, and LGBT issues converged into one, in other words, and Virginians resoundingly said no to the progressive agenda.

The dangerous ideas of Critical Race Theory (CRT) are being forced on students in public schools around the country.

This is wrong and parents have had enough! It's time to join them in saying "STOP!" to this harmful and racist propaganda.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which says "No to CRT" in public schools, and "Yes to parents' right" to strongly protest CRT.

But, what is CRT anyway and why is it so dangerous?

Critical Race Theory is a hateful system of indoctrination which teaches that one race is either superior or inferior to another race, and that the United States is inherently racist.

CRT is dangerous and hateful precisely because it teaches children who are not white to despise and envy white children simply because of their skin color. And, as a result, it also teaches white children to despise themselves simply because of the color of their skin.

CRT also erroneously teaches that American society is inherently racist, and that different, detrimental policies (like reparations for slavery and race-based pay scales) should be imposed on the population to redistribute wealth from whites to non-whites.

This type of racist/marxist propaganda should have NO place in public, taxpayer-funded schools!

And, thankfully, American parents of EVERY COLOR are raising their voices and ballots against it!

Indeed, parents understand the destructive ramifications of CRT and, despite outrageous threats from Biden's Justice Department to prosecute them, they have been strongly protesting CRT at school board meetings across the country!

And now, in the first test of its kind, a candidate who was campaigning hard against CRT just won the governorship of Virginia in a huge upset victory.

That's great news, but we now need to contact every state legislature about this crucial educational issue.

And, we need to DEMAND that they BAN Critical Race Theory from every public school in their states - both primary and high schools, and colleges!

Whereas advocates of CRT seem more intent on vengence than on teaching children of every race to respect everybody, regardless of skin color, American parents of every race understand that it is not the color of one's skin that matters, but the content of one's character (to paraphrase Martin Luther King, Jr.).

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition asking all state legislatures to BAN Crititical Race Theory from public schools in their respective states.

Thank you!

In response, leftists on MSNBC and elsewhere are doubling down, claiming that “the delta variant of Trumpism” is spreading like wildfire instead of self-reflecting on their Communistic approach and scaling it back a bit. Pretty foolish if you ask me.

Hispanic voters supported Youngkin, as did suburban voters that Trump (allegedly) lost in 2020. All this suggests that the 2022 midterms and beyond are looking great for Republicans, but only if they run on the right issues: parental rights, school choice, critical race theory, COVID mandates, and LGBT in schools.

These are issues that families, both working men and women, and stay-at-home moms, care about. I’m crossing my fingers Republicans will learn their lesson this time around and do what the people elect them to, but if past is prologue that’s unfortunately not a sure thing.
